Prayer to Saint Luke
Most wonderful St. Luke
you are animated by
the Heavenly Spirit of Love.
In faithfully detailing the humanity of Jesus,
you also showed
His Divinity and His genuine compassion for all human beings.
May the Holy Spirit, instructor of the faithful,
help me to understand
Christ’s words
and faithfully apply them in my life.
Amen.
